Aaron and Farris are about to have a very bad day.
In this Milo Ventimiglia produced comic, writer Rick Loverd really delivers a one-two punch combo of a story. And it has a mean hook, that grabs you from the first bell. Two young small town boys are having problems with their tempers. Farris worries his girlfriend by throwing lamps throwing walls in his sleep. Aaron frightens his girlfriend by shattering her ex-boyfriends arm and getting kicked off the wrestling team.
And that's the day BEFORE their bad day!
But there's more to these outbursts than mere tantrums, and two rival groups, MIDGARD and ASGARD are duking it out over who can recruit the boys into their mysterious folds.
This was a great issue and promises to be a great series. It's engaging, it's intriguing, and it's totally ass-kicking!
Loverd writes fantastic action sequences and balances them out with believable dialogue. Jeremy Hauns artwork is flawless. Many of the action scenes are silent, but Haun's artwork tells the story better than any captions ever could. Combine all that with Dave McCaig's colors and Troy Peteri's lettering, and you get a great story told in beautiful, clean panels, that are more than just the sum of their parts.
This one's gonna be a winner, gang. Get in before the inevitable "SOLD OUT AND GOING TO 2nd PRINT" news hits the internet!
Issue #1 due in stores June 24th.
